Cycling Holidays in Rhone-Alpes
Heading out on a cycling holiday in the Rhône-Alpes provides the ultimate opportunity to discover the diversity and natural wonder of this captivating region. From charming villages to mountain peaks, sedate countryside to the bustling city of Lyon, the Rhône-Alpes presents an unparalleled experience when explored on two wheels.
Like so many other regions in southern France, the Rhône-Alpes is far from short on dramatic landscapes of serene beauty. Thick forest and verdant, undulating hills reward those heading deep into the Rhône Valley, while the awe-inspiring peaks of the Alps command the skyline of the Savoie. With countless cycle trails available – many flat and even, others with steep ascents and more advanced terrain – there is a route through the region for riders of any ability.
Across the high plateau of the south, one of the most enchanting areas of the Rhône Valley lies waiting to be discovered. Here, the alluring Ardèche provides cyclists with a host of charming sights, towns, and magnificent scenery to enjoy. From the imposing castle of Tournon to captivating orchards at the heart of the countryside, tracing the winding River Rhône and following former railway lines gives riders an insight into the area like no other.
